Marcelo Somers is celebrating the one year anniversary of the The Syndicate Network this week. For anyone that is not aware, Marcelo runs The Syndicate as a side business and has a limited number of sites he works with. It’s an approach I like.
Marcelo is writing a lessons-learned retrospective that’s very interesting. It’s not so much about marketing as it is about starting a small business. Here’s a high level overview that I think tells a compelling story all on its own:
- The Roller Coaster
- Don’t Act in Desperation
- Build Relationships, Don’t Sell
- Apologize Profusely
- Invest During the Good Times
- Starting Your Own Business
